Amigurumi Birthday Frog

Happy Birthday Dad!

It's my Dad's 81st birthday on the 30th of May 2014. Dad and I have a thing for the frogs, lol I don't know what it is but we both get a case of the giggles when we see certain frogs and my guess is Dad is going to giggle for sure when he sees this one on Friday!

This is a free pattern I found online and it's a pretty simple pattern using basic stitches. I used Red Heart Comfort yarn and a 4.5mm hook. Those eyes are large
safety eyes that I painted myself with white and black acrylic craft paint then brushed on a clear coat of nail polish.
The pattern link is at the bottom of this post. Please enjoy more Frog photos as you scroll your way down!
awww, he really is a sweet froggy!

And he's quite large too!
15 and a little more inches all stretched out
A great pattern that's just  fun to make :)

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Now hop on over to Erika Hughes' Ravelry page and pick up your free pattern


Thanks for stopping by!

  5. hey, i have a question about the ladies pattern. Did you work the pattern exactly as she has written, doing 6 of each - meaning that the rows went past the stitch marker? Or did you modify to only do 4 of each, so that you had less stitches than what she said, but stayed in rounds?

    1. I did this one in 2014 so it's hard to remember if I modified anything. It might jar my memory if you told me what part you're speaking of though

  7. I made this frog back in 2014 as well. I also LOVE frogs and very fascinated with them. This free pattern was super easy and fast to whip up. I was thrilled to see you made it too. :)
